"I hope that many people will continue to enjoy 'Gurenge' and LiSA's music for a long time."
It is confirmed today that LiSA's 15th single song "Gurenge" (TV anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba OP theme) has finally reached 200 million streams in one year and ten months since its digital release on April 22, 2019.
It has become her second song to reach the milestone following her 17th single song "Homura" (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train theme song), which surpassed 200 million streams only in 19 weeks, the shortest time in the history of Oricon's streaming ranking.
"Gurenge" was the No.1 song in the digital single ranking of Oricon's 53rd "Oricon Annual Ranking 2020" with 942,691 downloads. It was the first time in the history of the ranking that a female artist had won the top spot. Also, the song's CD single has sold over 250,000 copies and certified "Platinum" by The Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ) in December 2020.
